Trump delivers keynote address at CPAC in Dallas

Former President Donald Trump has taken the stage to deliver the keynote address at the three-day Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas.

The speech at the CPAC event is the former president’s second address to the group since he left office — he spoke at CPAC in Orlando in February after leaving the White House.

Trump has remained a potent force in the GOP since exiting the White House and has repeatedly railed against the 2020 election results as fraudulent.

Last week, the former president also took aim at tech companies, filing a class-action lawsuit against Facebook, Twitter and YouTube for what he called the “illegal and shameful censorship of the American people.”

The tech giants shut down Trump’s accounts, including on Twitter, once his main digital pulpit with 88.6 million followers and nearly 60,000 tweets.

Trump has also stressed the importance of the 2022 midterm elections, touting favorable candidates and vowing to oust GOP candidates he deems disloyal.

He has also not ruled out another run for the White House in 2024.

And he has also continued to slam President Joe Biden, particularly regarding the immigration crisis at the US border with Mexico, where Bide halted his predecessor’s highly touted project to build a new border wall.

The ex-president’s speech at CPAC’s Dallas gathering comes two days after his son, Donald Trump Jr., addressed the gathering on Friday.

Other noteworthy speakers at the three-day conference were Florida Sen. Rich Scott, Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert, and Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, and Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee.
